We’re very excited to be part of the newly-launched Veterans’ Gateway as one of its specialist referral partners.
Veterans’ Gateway is a one-stop-shop for all veterans and their families seeking support. It is set to become the first point of contact for these individuals, allowing quick and straightforward access to the information, advice and support they need.
The gateway is formed of a number of specialist organisations that provide support to the Armed Forces community, so get in touch if you need advice about anything – employment, health, welfare, housing etc. Their team of advisers are on hand 24/7.
The Veterans’ Gateway is meant to be accessible to all and support is available in many different forms, from an extensive range of Self Help guides to a crisis telephone number.
You can find out more by visiting www.veteransgateway.org.uk or calling 0808 802 1212.
This is first time a group of charities have come together formally to deliver such a service to benefit the Armed Forces community. Some of the other organisations involved include The Royal British Legion, SSAFA, Combat Stress and Connect Assist.
The Poppy Factory will continue to provide employability support though our usual channels, but you are now also able to access our support through the Veteran’s Gateway.
